Lighted Outdoor Christmas Decorations
Lighted outdoor Christmas decorations – Measure your lighting needs, correct measurement is key when it comes to making an installation of outdoor Christmas lighting. Measure where you need light for hanging, adding in an extra 30 feet. Be aware of where the outdoor outlets are around your home, and try to buy strings in lengths that will reach these transactions. Because it is generally not advisable to string together more than three strings at once, you want to get the right length strands.
Hanging your lighted outdoor Christmas decorations, once you have properly checked your equipment and bought the necessary tools, you are ready to hang your lights. Use plastic clips, not nails or staples to attach the light to the home. Support your threads with a hook every few feet. Do not hang near heat sources, like a dryer vent. Do not use an extension cord or light wire through a closed window or door, as this can damage the insulation. Take lit up at night or when you are not home. Take the lights down at the end of the holiday season. Not doing this can fray wires and cause damage.
Cost Considerations, lighted outdoor Christmas decorations can make your December electric bill significantly higher. You may want to install outdoor Christmas lighting on a timer for two reasons: one is for security, because they automatically turn off at the end of the evening; the second is to help keep your electricity costs down. Home without outside power can be changed for outdoor lighting. Ask your power company and a certified electrician to get your home ready for the holidays.
